How did it get there?
The year is 2033 and you are eating your lunch when you get a glimpse of the sustainably produced no-pesticide bio leafy greens in your plate. You can thank AgTech7 for them! Let’s wind back to today and we will tell you why:
AgTech7 is educating and empowering European HEIs’/Research Institutes’ students, incubator managers, entrepreneurs and business angels to develop and grow agribusinesses through a wide set of agri-tech disruptive farm-to-fork applications in an interdisciplinary way.
To realise this goal AgTech7 has created a 7 week course focusing on different aspects of agritech (from the Internet of things to financing to neuroscience!) and how they can be leveraged to take agribusinesses to the next level. These subjects have never been combined in a course on agritech in the past and this is what is making this course particularly unique. We, as EBAN, have taken it upon ourselves to focus on “Financial Innovation in AgriTech Systems” and each of our partners in this project has shared their knowledge and expertise on a different relevant subject.
This project is expected to disrupt the world of agriculture by educating entrepreneurs and investors on how to make an agribusiness succeed, by inspiring universities and research institutions to study agritech and its real-life applications, by enhancing the knowledge of incubator managers, and by making all of the above aware of the the benefits the adoption of farm-to-fork method.
By aiming to include and address both entrepreneurs/ angels and academics/ students, AgTech7 is expected to have a huge impact on agriculture through university research, businesses created and businesses funded thanks to it – businesses whose products will most likely end up on your plate. So you can expect to find “a bit of AgTech” in all your salads in the coming years!
AgTech7 is a European project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union that stimulates innovation along the entire farm-to-fork food-chain by developing a multidisciplinary course covering technical and business subjects such as Earth Observation and IoT, Data Analytics, Financial Innovation and Lean Startup models.
